EDIZIONE 2014THEATREISABELLE HUPPERT READS SADE

ISABELLE HUPPERT READS SADE

Juliette et Justine, le vice et la vertu


with Isabelle Huppert
texts combined by Raphal Enthoven
production Les visiteurs du soir


"Anti utopia" is the expected word to describe the work of Sade, a dystopia where the murder, the sexual violence, the anthropophagy are praised as long as it enables the powerful to enjoy freely.
Isabelle Huppert embodies two iconic figures of the work of Sade: Justine and Juliette, two sisters with opposite fates, one lost by the virtue, the other triumphing through vice.
Through them, Raphal Enthoven questions the embarrassment which presses on the literary production and the message of the sulphurous writer: " I cannot understand the reason why the Marquis de Sade still has reasons to shock us. () His praise of the vice and the extravagance of the orgies he describes are not enough to understand the level of disgust which he inspires. The evil comes of farther. Sade is the shadow of the Lights, the dark side of the sun. His immoralism is at first an amoralism. Under the curses of the non-believer against the " divine fancy ", it’s necessary to feel his refusal to believe that the world was made to please us. What’s umbearable with him is the constancy with which he builds a philosophy - and even an ethics - on the base of an frosty and inhuman world".

"Isabelle Huppert reads magnificently extracts of the " Divine Marquis " in front of a full house."
"Here, the French language is best and the texts show that Sade is one of big French prose-writers."
"Isabelle Huppert alternately portrays, rebel or dark, both sisters. She’s perfect. With her, the very classic and former style of Sade sounds light, modern and without dullness. Huppert is a very huge actress ready for all the creative experiences. She still proves it here."
